PLAYERS: Jay Bruce
TEAMS: Cincinnati Reds
Your browser does not support iframes. It took all of nine minutes for the Reds (7-7) to upend the Phillies (6-8) in a suspended game on Tuesday. On Monday, the two clubs played 8 1/2 innings of scoreless baseball before Mother Nature unleashed a torrential downpour over Cincinnati. The umpiring crew cleared the field and called for a delay, which eventually turned into rescheduling the conclusion of the game for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. When play resumed Tuesday, Philadelphia's Phillippe Aumont took the mound, and then Reds shortstop Zack Cozart led off the inning with a walk. Joey Votto then followed with another walk and Brandon Phillips reached base thanks to an error by Phillies center fielder Ben Revere. This loaded the bases for Jay Bruce, who was 0-for-3 in the game entering the at-bat. But he came through in grand fashion by stroking the first pitch he saw into right field for a single.

Shin-Soo Choo silencing critics early

On December 11, 2012, Shin-Soo Choo was brought to the Cincinnati Reds along with Jason Donald in a three team, nine player trade that also involved the Arizona Diamondbacks.

He is Untouchable; he is The Toddfather

When the Reds game ended tonight, Todd Frazier’s OPS sat exactly on the beautiful .900 number. He has become a middle of the order hitter, and he’s done it his way just like Sinatra. The Toddfather’s way is **** swings. Borderline flailing at pitches. Wasting a guy’s best stuff with your worst. When he’s not suspecting it and his back is turned, you pull out your Tommy...
